Things I Do Like

Recommended Posts

I do like my new laptop. Full HD 1080p 15.6" display, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD (OS installed on it), 8GB DDR4 RAM and a red illuminated keyboard (it's a mid-level gaming laptop). 
Very fast to boot and quick response for opening apps, documents etc.

I do like finally getting the Focus steering pump leak fixed! 😀

 

Not so sure about the size of the packaging it came home in though! Could have sent it in a Jiffy bag 🙄

Unless you're submitting to the pay wall that is Sky, it's only the British GP that's live this year and highlights for the rest on Channel 4.

I will not pay a penny to Sky for F1 any more. Compared to the BCC and Channel 4 coverage, Sky's was very poor (had a Sky sub for the first few seasons after they got the F1 contract).

F1 was never the same after Murray Walker left/retired.

I agree with that. I've got F1 and F1 97 for PS1 and his commentary just made the games.

Nope - I have 2 young kids so watching the qualifying and race live is a distant memory. Channel 4 highlights are just fine for me...

After finding out I was missing a rubber seal just inside the drivers door under the little window, I got the part from Ford for £1. 
The second image is how I found out it was missing and is from the passenger side.

Only £1? Result! I always thought it was a £20 minimum spend in Ford's, it usually seems that way! 😀

Yep, £1. I thought it would have been like a fiver or something but it was only a quid. 
Good to know that I can get another one if I decide to route my amp wire through that area.

I do like seeing the Mk8 Fiesta ST on Top Gear last night...the pops on the gearchanges really made me want one! :laugh: 

But seriously, Chris Harris was saying about the rear suspension being far more complaint than the Mk7 due to the torque vectoring springs and variable damping...can anyone confirm that in real world driving?  Ride comfort was  about the worst thing about the Mk6 ST I had!

Recorded this so looking forward to watching. Very interested in how the suspension works in the real world, as that was what put me off the Mk 7.

I suspect that, despite any improvements, it will still be a similar story for me with the Mk 8. Only managed a quick drive round the block so far, waiting for my usual dealer to put their long term demo on so I can have a decent drive. I find the ST- Line a decent compromise for the rubbish roads I drive on, so really if the ST is much harder, it'll still be a no go for me I'm afraid.

I saw the beginning of the final episode of the series but my dad was messing around trying to adjust something on the TV. Didn't know the new series started.

Don't know about you guys, but couldn't get into it this series. Only things I found of much interest were the Renault Megane RS test and the Suzuki Ignis vs Panda mountain climb - hopefully I'll find the ST item good too.

I did have an idea to revitalise the show, though. Replace the "Star in a reasonably priced car" thing with "Totally unknown guy (ie me) in an outrageously priced car". 😀Whaddya reckon?

You can get it on iPlayer if you have a laptop or smart TV.  I wouldn't want to watch an hour's program on a phone screen though lol.  Actually just thought, there's probably an iPlayer app on the PS4?

I must admit, I'm still not a fan of the 'new' Top Gear, I thought it'd grow on me but I still prefer watching repeats of Clarksons TG on Dave tbh.  It's alright to pass an hour on a Sunday night, but if there was something else on I wouldn't be fussed about missing it.

I can't really remember anything from the previous shows in this series, even the RS test and Ignis climb had completely slipped my mind until you said that!

There is indeed a BBC iPlayer app on the PS4. I used it last night to watch Top Gear.

I haven't watched top gear since that Evans bloke spoilt it. 

Is it because he is Ginger?

I thought Chris was okay, but I think I prefer Joey Matt. The current presenters make a good team. Either way, Clarkson et al were getting really tiresome. I'm not holding out much hope for McGuinness and Flintoff...

Went and done some cooking today. Made some prawn toast not long ago 🦐. Was a bit too oily sadly. Also did make some burgers again for the parents in the early afternoon 😊DSC_0067.thumb.JPG.0ee872d46c8750ef147559503c2707a7.JPG
